22.3.40 Downturned molded rim, from which projects the horizontal element of a ridged strap handle that curves back in and descends to the shoulder. Body drops sharply from shoulder and tapers to raised base. Cf. several examples in Lipari 2, esp. Lipari 2, 138, pl. CXXXVI.4a (tomb 385, 'stile Gnathia') 2003.37.0005.jpg
45.4.5 Miniature? For shape cf. Metapontine examples dated to the end of the fifth century (Carter 1998, 2.729). For an Attic prototype see Beazley's form 5a (Beazley 1963, 1065 n. 5) 2003.92.0395.jpg
45.6.34 Bell-shaped mouth tapering to a short neck that broadens to an ovoid body. High swung strap handle joins from neck to shoulder. Conical foot. 'Pagenstecher lekythos' type. Cf. CVA Michigan 1, pl. 27.11 (smaller but similar shape and surface, said to have been found at Taranto) and Lentini inv. 61597: Lagona 1973, no. 85, pl. 11 (more slender). Both of these examples have smaller handles. For Sicilian vessels of this shape (decorated with bands or undecorated) see examples from Selinunte (Anne Kustermann Graf, Selinunte. Necropoli di Manicalunga. Le tombe della Contrada Gaggera [2002] 181 inv. nos. 113/0 952 and 953, pl. 57 [tomb 113]); Camarina (MonAnt 54 [1990] 25, pl. VIII [tomb 590.2]; 54, pl. XXVI [tomb 799.1-2]; and pl. LXXXIII [tombs 1222.5-6 and 1232.2, which are taken to be (imitative of) Corinthian lekythoi). 2002.97.0017.JPG
50.4.13 Attic type skyphos (cf. Agora 12, no. 341) except for plain underside, size (somewhat smaller than Attic examples), and perhaps breadth of handles. Rounded rim, below which are two horizontal round handles, horseshoe shaped. Walls continuously curve into a deep bowl, divided from the short torus ring foot by a groove. 2003.97.0646.jpg
50.4.18 Nearly identical to a lidded mug excavated from the Pantanello Necropolis at Metaponto, published by Maria Elliott, in Carter 1998 2.643, fig. 14.2, 667 M3 (T 128-2): the Pantanello mug, which Elliott describes as an 'odd mug' and probably a local imitation of the late 5 c. Attic double handle mug (667), has a knotted handle which is otherwise similar to ours in contour and thickness. For less close comparanda cf. Morel 1981, type 5345a (citing examples from Capua and environs, e.g. CVA Capua 3, Italia 1312 no. 2: less squat, but similar); these Campanian examples are dated to ca. 300. Convex lip with rounded outturned rim, to which is joined a vertical strap handle, tripartite, with two projections on either side of the rim attachment. The handle loops and reattaches at the top of the bulging, ribbed body (ribbing visible on the interior). Tall angled ring foot, the interior of which has an incised spiral (not visible on exterior). 2010.98.0291.jpg
50.4.19 The shape is nearly identical to that of a smaller lekythos from the Pantanello Necropolis at Metaponto, published by M. Elliott in Carter 1998, 2.684-85 SL10 (T 128-3), although the ribbing is more akin to that found on Pantanello SL9 (T 126-9). Cf. also Sicilian examples from Agrigento (especially AG 1331: de Miro 1962, 137, fig. 41c). See also 'comments' below. 2003.37.0082.jpg
REDMG:1934.53.5 Belly-handled jar. High outturned rim narrowing to a short neck; ovoid body, in the centre of which are attached two vertical round handles, canted; flat base, slightly concave. Cf. larger examples of this shape are in Toronto, Royal Ontario Museum 918.3.77 (Hayes 1984, 47, no. B29, ill.) and Orvieto, Querce inv. 398 (Camporeale 1970, 126 no. 136, fig. 59, pl. 32b). 2004.99.0331.jpg
